How long would this card last, gaming wise....

For a laptop, how long would this last at putting graphics intensive games at max setting?
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M

Max settings? Never. It's already too weak.

Edit: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-765M.92907.0.html

It states that it only runs games like Crysis 3 on High at 1366x768 which is not even going to be the native screen resolution. Expect much lower cranking them to 900p or 1080p.

So it'd be best to go with a 770M then right?

This is the 770m
http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-770M.88995.0.html

Performance says games like Crysis 3 max settings with no anti aliasing at 900p. So still not close to maxing it.

It sounds like you want max performance out of your games which is really hard to obtain with a laptop, especially on a budget. If you can get a laptop with a 7970m, 680m, or 780m you would be doing much better for yourself. I'd recommend building a desktop if you can. The price to performance ratio is much much better. I have a gaming laptop with a 7970m and built a desktop with a GTX 780. Price was the same, the 780 destroys the 7970m.

I know the price will be significantly different between laptop & desktop, but I have a desktop already, as well as an alienware laptop right now that I won....I'll either be selling this one or giving it to my daughter....

But as far as spending limit, I have a range of up to $2500 (more if I sell this laptop), so I'm sure I can get something that's going to be at least a little future proof laptop wise...At least I'd hope so for the price lol

If your budget is around $2500 definitely get either an Alienware m17 with a 780m or an Alienware m18 with SLI 780ms. Right now they're out of stock but the ETA on them is a couple of weeks. If you spend that much you definitely want to go with Alienware because every other brand falls short compared to Dell's warranty. You can even have accidental damage covered and any problems during your warranty period, techs will be sent out to you so you don't need to send the laptop in.

Definitely shouldn't be looking at 765ms or 770ms if your budget is that high. SLI 780ms should out perform even a desktop 780.

780m SLI might be comparable to a 780 at stock but a 780 classified will do a lot better without having to deal with SLI. They're not quite as powerful as a 660ti and don't have much OC headroom because they already run extremely hot.

The ones on the alienware site that have the 780m & SLI are almost, if not, double my budget though.I do however want another AlienWare laptop as I am atm enjoying the hell outta this one, and may be stupid, but I'm a sucker for the Alien FX lighting lol
